Can Photoluminescent Technology lead building occupants to safety?

Photoluminescent technology systems

As a facility manager, it’s crucial that you enhance life safety measurements annually. Emergency Preparedness saves lives and the best way to save building occupants during an emergency is to establish a safe evacuation route. You can create a safe evacuation plan for your building occupants by using photoluminescent evacuation systems.

Photoluminescent technology products allow facility managers to remove the uncertainty that the building occupants will have difficulty finding the emergency exits because phooluminescent technology does not need batteries or electricity to operate. Often at times loss of life occurs in facilities because facility managers rely on electrical and battery powered exit signs and lighting to help building occupants evacuate. A good emergency preparedness strategy will have reliable emergency egress systems set in place. To put it simple, photoluminescent exit signs and photoluminescent egress systems are essential to your emergency preparedness plan.

About the function of Photoluminescent Technology

Photoluminescent technology is a collection of non-radioactive crystals. The crystals absorb natural light and store that energy. It will glow when the light energy is needed for an emergency evacuation. With the advancements in photoluminescent technology your photoluminescent technology products will glow longer and brighter. The photoluminescent products are perfect for exit signs, egress systems, concrete surfaces, fire fighter gear/ equipment and more.

Here are the best places to install photoluminescent egress systems at your facility:

-Handrails

-Stairways

-Landings

-Doors and overall floor areas.

On average the glow of photoluminescent technology can last up to 96 hours at a time during total darkness emergencies.
